Very disappointed in the dinner service. I frequent Spencer’s for client lunches and never an issue. There was only 8 tables occupied, the rest empty. Only 2 servers and no manager on duty tonight, I was shocked when a busboy brought our food out. It was 20 minutes from when we were seated until we were approached, finally got water and a wine list 20 minutes later, our food finally showed up but we were still waiting for our bottle of wine, the waiter really seemed overwhelmed and confused. I frequent this place for lunch very frequently the past 8 years and tonight really shed some light on the disfunction and I will be looking for a new lunch spot.

Spencer's is our go-to restaurant when my wife and I are craving steak since it's nearby and prepares the steaks the way we like them. We had ribeyes, brussel sprouts, salt and pepper fries and we split a Ceasar salad. All items were delicious as were the 2 Pinot Noirs we chose. Nickos(?) provided great service even though they were short-staffed that evening, which leads to the only negative during this visit. We had 6 PM reservations but we arrived late at 6:15 PM. Upon being greeted by the hostess she informed us that due to being short on servers that we'd have to wait about 5 minutes or we could choose to dine in the bar area if we preferred no to wait. We decided we'd rather sit in the main dining room and didn't mind waiting. Though she checked up on us a couple times, we didn't get seated until 7 PM. This is the first time we've had this happen so we'll chalk it up as being caused by an unforeseen staffing issue that couldn't have been avoided. Once seated, we did notice that the service took slightly longer than usual but we understood the situation and thought we still received good service. Thank you.

We had a rough day of unplanned airline delays and travel, but we finally made it to our destination. Thankfully Spencer's was conveniently located close to the airport, and it was an evening we will never forget. Quite simply the best steak meal I have ever had with sides that were unique and very special. The ambiance was just what we needed and service second to none. When we are in the area, I plan to come back and visit.

Dinner with clients. Clients really appreciated the food and service and it wasn't too busy, so the noise level was very good. Even with a large party behind a draped partition was not noticeable, so overall a really good experience. We each choose the rib eye and shared a couple sides and appetizers. Really enjoyed the calamari.

We were able to be seated right away even though we were about 20 minutes early for our reservation. The ambiance is very nice, has an upscale feel that would rival Morton’s or Alexander’s. The drinks were good, although I didn’t taste any maple in my maple Manhattan, and the wine list was extensive. I also appreciated that they had an option to purchase a half bottle of wine, knowing that many people want more options than what is on the “by the glass” list, but they can’t always finish a whole bottle of wine. The steak was cooked and seasoned perfectly, however, that was the only part of our meal that we really enjoyed. The calamari we ordered for our appetizer didn’t have any dipping sauce and the crema cheese that was supposed to be on there was very sparse...definitely didn’t see any of the other items the menu it said it came with. The 3 sides we got to go with our steaks were ok. The potatoes weren’t as light and airy as they should have been, but still tasted great to me since it tasted like the mashed potatoes I grew up on. The creamed spinach had WAY too much nutmeg in it and wasn’t very creamy, and the crab Mac and cheese didn’t have enough crab for me to taste it.

Overall, the food was ok, but definitely not worth the price point.

Passport is now imposing a $25 fee. The dinner off was $47. The prices at Spencer's are now 25% higher so there is no value. Willard Hicks is a better value. Parking is hard and the service level has dropped.

Disappointing given Spencer’s was highly rated. 3 people in our party ordered steaks and none of them were cooked as requested. I had to send my bone in filet back twice. I typically order my meat medium well but have been to many fine steakhouses that are able to successfully prepare it the first time. Thankfully we were not charged for my steak. The ambiance and wine list at Spencer’s were good.

The filet that I had was good. The crab to accompany the steak was bland (no flavor). We had appetizers: bacon (good if you avoid the fat), crab cakes (mediocre) and ahi (I didn't like it). The Caesar salad was not good. The lettuce was fresh but the salad dressing was not good. There were 8 of us and 4 of had the Caesar salad - not of us liked it. The bread and the butter (with sea salt) was very good. Several of us were open to dessert but the dessert menu was not appealing. One person had cheesecake and said it was okay. The consensus on the steak (almost everyone had steak) was that it was overcooked, including mine. Birks is a much better steakhouse.

It’s been more than 10 years since we last dined here, and I’m sad to say that the experience is not as good. The food may be as good, but the attention to detail has disappeared.
The location is convenient if you are staying on property or at a nearby hotel.

Good dinner Wednesday night. I particularly appreciated that the service allowed our party of six to visit at an unhurried pace. Service was mostly professional, though the attempts to up sell were a bit much at times. Food, through three courses, was generally good with some highs (the squid appetizer) and some lows (chicken on the salads). Steaks were solid choice.

Good for business meals as well as small group gathering. The food (tuna tart, seafood trio, beef and lobster tail, chicken) ordered last night was in general good, except for calamari which could be more tasty if it's not a little bit too salty.
I once ate here for birthday with 2 friends. Forgot what we ordered, but remember the pretty presentation of desserts.

One of the better kept secrets of Silicon Valley. I have been enjoying fine steaks (and occasionally other nice things from the menu) for many years. Good wine list and good selection of beers. Good service and a friendly wait staff. One more thing, the noise level is remarkably low even when the dinning area is full. Don't let the location fool you (its in the lobby of a hotel), it is a refined steak house that will not disappoint.

Our lunch was to celebrate the closing of a transaction we had all worked hard to complete. We wanted a business setting, we were not drinking, we wanted nice food, good service and a dignified ambiance. We were not disappointed. While Spencer's is a Hilton Hotel chain mainstay and could be ordinary, I would say in San Jose it is not ordinary. It measures up to what it needs to be.
